    - Metzeler Rear ME 880 150/80VB-15? -

    Has anyone used one of these tires at the dragstrip? I wonder how they stack up, grip-wise to the oem tires?? I have a gut feeling that they grip like hard plastic, based on the long tread life. If someone has used one at the track, tell me what kind of 60' times you have turned on them. I...

    ME 880 test ride

    I put a 170/80 R15 on Thursday w/o having any clearance issues. Love the look and slightly lower cruising RPMs. Took the bike to Deals Gap on Saturday and rode the loop around through the Cherohala Skyway. Weather was great, traffic was light, and didn't even see that many cops. A great ride on...
